Beginner Figure Drawing - How to Draw Hair

via Skillshare


If this continuation of this Beginner Figure Drawing series we cover one of the more fun aspects of the drawing process and that's Hair.  In this tutorial we'll cover the best ways to simplify the complex nature of hair, and how to best tackle tricky hair style and shapes.  The first part of the lesson will be a lecture and Demonstration, followed by a 30 minute Timed Drawing Session, and finishing with a Time Drawing Demonstration. It's recommended you first cover the Head Construction Series if you're just starting out with art.
